Volunteer at NFCC

Opportunities for Individuals 

Volunteer are crucial to our work serving families in need in our community. Interested in joining our volunteer team?  We have a variety of ways to serve. Opportunities for individuals are available in our food pantry, thrift shop, education program, office and administration, seasonal assistance drives, events and more.  

Volunteers must be age 18 and up.  Students age 16-17 can learn about student opportunities here.  Volunteers interested in court-related hours click here.

Ongoing Opportunities

 Thrift Shop

Volunteers at NFCC Thrift Shop work hand-in-hand with staff unloading and processing donations, sorting, inspecting and pricing items, as well as stocking the shelves and racks and providing excellent customer care to our shoppers. We have openings most mornings and afternoons. Recurring and one time volunteer opportunities are available.


Our Workforce Development team needs volunteer Job and Financial Coaches to work with our clients moving toward financial stability. Coaches will be paired with clients and will meet with them at NFCC. We also need GED tutors for evening sessions at our facility.  

Seasonal Opportunities

Our seasonal assistance drives offer a fun and valuable way to plug in. Volunteers are needed for these programs throughout the year. Programs include Spring and Winter Senior Baskets, Back-to-School Backpacks, Warm Coats, Thanksgiving, and Toyland Shop. All volunteers for seasonal must be at least 13 years old.

At Home Projects

At home projects are a valuable way to help NFCC and the families we serve and are a great way for children under age 13 to give back to their community (though anyone of any age can participate from home).

Court-Related Volunteer Hours

NFCC offers opportunities for adults to fulfill community service volunteer hours.  More information is available in the link below. 


We have opportunities in our thrift shop, food pantry, intake desk, general office and education center that require at least a weekly commitment.  In addition, we have one-time opportunities with our seasonal assistance programs, events and special projects.

Many of our volunteer positions require a weekly commitment. If you can’t commit to a weekly shift, we have additional opportunities with our seasonal program, events and special projects

You will learn about the mission of NFCC. You will receive a packet of NFCC information, a tour and a chance to meet with NFCC staff and other volunteers. You will learn about the many opportunities in our organization and complete simple forms required by NFCC for volunteer service. We will discuss the best placement/schedule for your service. As soon as you sign up for Orientation on our online calendar, more information will be emailed to you

Closed-toed shoes are a must!  Wear comfortable, modest clothing. You may get a little bit dirty, so plan accordingly. We have gloves if you ask for them. We will give you a name tag and a volunteer T-shirt after you establish a volunteer schedule.

We have a limited number of small lockers available, but we prefer that you lock valuables out of sight in your car. We cannot be responsible for your personal items. We will try to provide water bottles and snacks, but you may also bring your own.

Park in the upper lot if space is available. If not, anywhere in the front parking area. Please stay out of the gated area and anywhere marked “Staff.”

We are unable to accept any volunteers under the age of 13. Individuals younger than 13 may get involved through projects at home. Teens 13-15 may volunteer with a parent or adult representative present at all times. Teens 16 and older may volunteer alone, with a parent signature on our waiver. Teens need to be scheduled and cannot just come with you during your shift.
